A Day for Mosaics

We traded to Ravenna which is on the east coast of Italy. As such it was one of the early Christian sites with churches dating back to the 4th and 5th centuries.
The two we visited were built by the same man and decorated extensively with mosaics. They were hard to photograph because the windows are covered with alabaster which gives a orange light to the interior.
